Children who find Jesus, find love and courage

Children today face daily challenges from peer pressure, social media, and distressing news stories.

Good News Clubs are a source of truth and comfort in the community. Here children discover that God loves them, that Jesus is their Savior, and that the Bible can provide guidance in troubling times.

What makes CEFNorCal different?

“My apartment complex hosted a five day club. Although I wasn’t really interested, I went with my younger niece. Each day the teachers would joyfully teach us the gospel and constantly remind us about god’s love. After 5 days I decided to accept Jesus Christ into my life. I was amazed by how much he loved me… I still cherish one of the many promises they taught me: “Jesus will never leave me. The Lord is my helper. -based on Hebrews ch 13 vs 5:6 - this promise has helped me through many difficult situations as I was growing up in my faith."

  1. Child safety and parental permission is paramount Every child gets to hear about Jesus in a safe place and with parental support. All of our teachers and volunteers have passed extensive safety checks, and we build relationships with parents, who are always welcome to see our work firsthand. Building trust this way means children have a safe place where they can focus on learning the Gospel.
  2. We invest in training and materials to achieve the best possible results. We make sure our teachers have the materials, training, and ongoing support to do their best work. This means that our teachers are enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and ready to teach the Gospel clearly in every lesson.
  3. We’re doing local work (with a worldwide impact)
    One of the things supporters of CEF NorCal love is that they know the work is being done in the 48 counties of Northern California, and any funding goes directly to support this work. We know from experience that the children we train today can heal the world tomorrow as they also grow and share the Gospel with others on their life’s journey.
